This afternoon the college gardeners, supported by a team of volunteers, opened the gardens in aid of charity. The funds raised from the entry, plant sale and cake sale will be donated to the gardeners two chosen charities are The Cystic Fibrosis Trust and S.S.N.A.P (Support for Sick Newborn And their Parents). Following a brief shower before opening time, the sun shone, one further quick, heavy downpour didn't dampen the day, and for three hours they welcomed the few hundred visitors to the gardens. A lovely afternoon was had by all, so many positive comments from our visitors, and lots of money raised, thank you.
